Man Handcuffs Himself To Jeremy Clarkson's Car At Diddly Squat Farm

Jeremy Clarkson became the unsuspecting victim of a prank at his Diddly Squat farm where a 'protestor' handcuffed himself to the star's car. You can watch the moment here:


The TV star will be appearing on the first episode of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway but he had no idea as he jumped out of his Land Rover to see people gathered around his farm shop.

The clip shows Clarkson driving up while 'protestors' shouted: "No more toil, keep your soil," holding signs that read 'Jeremy knows diddly squat' and 'your name's mud'.

When he gets out of the car, he can be heard saying: "The thing about soil is... you can't hurt it."

Behind the scenes Ant can be seen using a mic and headphones to tell the rest of the crew what he wants them to do.

At one point we realise that Dec is posing as one of the campaigners as he shouts through a megaphone towards Jeremy and tells him: "Maybe you should phone a friend," in reference to Clarkson's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire gig.

While Jeremy stands and talks to a 'protestor', who seems to be an actor, a man runs around his 4x4 and handcuffs himself to the door handle.

This has all been impeccably timed as Jeremy has been having issues ever since opening the Diddly Squat farm.

The 61-year-old TV host opened the shop in Chadlington, Oxon, last year, and has faced opposition to expansion, and faced locals at a meeting to discuss traffic worries.

The farm was the setting for Amazon series Clarkson's Farm.

Following grievances from neighbours over the increase in traffic and driving by visitors to the shop, Clarkson revealed he wanted to build a restaurant in an old lambing shed on his land.

His plans angered his already disgruntled neighbours with Clarkson writing about their reaction in a Sunday Times column, saying that his suggestion had 'gone down like a shower of sick with a few red-trouser people in my local village'.

Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway returns this Saturday to ITV.
